wben I see them," he said of advance-
-epnts made by minorities.
- Franklin said he belie ves affirma-
tive action necessary in continuing
that progress. Arguments against
affirmative action, he testified, are
simiilar to the arguments that were
rfde against integration in the
00's.
"History tends to repeat itself," he
saisoutside the courtroom.
Franklin also testified that once "soci-
ety opens up to African Americans,
.minority groups) will have greater
ppportunities as well."
. Once outside the courtroom, Franklin
said he interpreted attacks on affirma-
tive action as implicit assaults on blacks,
botsidering that blacks are the main
beficiaries of affirmative action pro-
Ss.
Also testifying yesterday was Jay
Rosner, executive director of the Prince-
ton Review.
Rosner, who will continue his testi-
m6ny Feb. 6 when the case resumes,
contends that standardized tests like the
Law School Admissions Test are biased
towards white applicants.
calling the notion that the LSAT
d predict a person's aptitude fir
law "laughable," Rosner said the
LSAT "doesn't mean anything."
Rather, he said, "what the LSAT
measures is how well you do on the
LSAT."
The intervenors have argued race
must be taken into account to offset the
bias against minorities because LSAT
scores are a key factor in admissions

around them.
"The power of love amidst dif-
ficult reality is the source of
dealing with life. Power and
responsibility lie within us,"
Wine said.
Humanistic Judaism's reliance
on self and independence from
God inspired some and leaves
others skeptical.
"Why be Jewish?" asked
Daniel Badar, an Orthodox Jew,
after hearing the lecture.
Wine and Epstein said they
hope to educate the Jewish com-
munity with their beliefs.
"We picture ourselves working
closely with Reform and Ortho-
dox Jews because a Jew may be
comfortable there but there is
another that may not be," Epstein
said.

HISTORIC

considered historic buildings. Cook is a nationally
registered historical building.
"I had no idea that it was historical," said Martha
Cook resident Shfuthi Sriram, an LSA freshman.
"Everything's really pretty and antique. It gives it a
nice homey feeling."
Other students, however, chose to live in Cook
because of its historic background. "I took a tour
and thought 'Wow, I have to live here,"' LSA junior
Antonia Henry said. "The beauty of the dorm and
the fact that it has a lot of tradition and history real-
ly appealed to me."
Other student residencies such as apartment
buildings and private houses are also old enough to
be considered historical.
"There are lots of apartments on State Street that
are historical," local historian Grace Shackman
said.
One of the most recognizable historical resi-
dencies on campus is the President's House.
"The President's house was first constructed
as one of four homes for University professors.
The President's House is the only one left today;"

Shackman said.
With a multitude of historical buildings on cam-
pus, care and renovation are significant issues for
the University. Due to its status as a state institu-
tion, the University is not under any specific laws
that regulate the care of the buildings.
Despite this lack of formal regulation, the Uni-
versity strives to improve and preserve the histori-
cal buildings on campus.
In 1996 Angell Hall underwent major rennxa-°
tions. "We were very careful to preserve its histobi-
cal appearance such as its beautiful front
architecture,' said Julie Truettner, University hist0-
rian and administrative assistant to the Architecture
and Planning Office.
Haven Hall, built in 1952, is undergoing renoya=
tion while West Hall, the C.C. Little Science Build-
ing and Rackham Graduate School are all historical
buildings due for renovations, Truettner said.
"In the last 15 years there has been a real cfri
to protect historical buildings," Truettner said.
Renovation and preservation, however, is not-an
easy task. The President's House has received
countless additions, including a third floor and sevs
eral added wings. "It's got its problems being an old
house but we try to make it livable,' Truettner said.

know can be done because people can
do them."
Doctoral candidates Uluc Saranli,
Eric Klavius and Holdun Komsuoglu
are working with the RHex Project, a
project inspired by how cockroaches
and other insects control their legs to
move quickly and efficiently.
RHex, a robotic hexapod, relies more
on speed than accuracy and is designed
to obtain efficiency and fast locomotion,
Saranhi said.
"We have in mind more useful appli-
cations, such as mine cleaning or earth-

quakes," Saranli said. "So RHex needs
to be able to go into rubble and spaces
that are harder to navigate. We're talking
about a robot that won't just operate in a
structural format."
Saranli said the robot has to be capa-
ble of surviving accidents like falling
down cliffs and be able to pick itself up
and start walking again in the absence
of a human operator.
"The principles we're working with
will be useful in creating tools to
address human needs," he said. "It'll be
able to do the things people can't or
don't want to do."
Klavius said the marketability of
robots will increase in the next 10 years

with the emergence of more complex
technology.
"There are going to be a generation
of kids primed to do robotics work and
research in the same way people work
with computers now," Klavius said.
"Products that mow your lawn and do
industrial cleaning aren't that far away."
EECS Prof. Martha Pollack is work-
ing on a project called Nursebot, a proto-
type system that is designed to help
people with mild memory loss by
reminding them to perform daily living
tasks like eating and taking medicine.
"Artificial intelligence is important
because the world is becoming more
and more automated," Pollack said.
